The Disciplinary Board plays a crucial role in the lawyer discipline process. Members serve an important
and challenging adjudicative role and preside over lawyer disciplinary proceedings. All members serve
on the full Board and on one Review Committee.

The full Board meets monthly online or in a hybrid setting (online and at the WSBA’s Seattle office).
Review Committee meetings are held online monthly.

The Disciplinary Board carries out adjudicative functions and duties according to the Rules for
Enforcement of Lawyer Conduct adopted by the Washington Supreme Court, and its recommendations
and decisions are subject to review by the state Supreme Court. The full Board reviews
appeals from hearing officer decisions and also approves or rejects certain stipulations to discipline. The Disciplinary Board is split up into four Review Committees. Each Review Committee consists
of three members, which review disciplinary investigation reports and appeals from dismissals of
grievances.

Most of the Board’s work is highly confidential.

The term is three-years: October 1, 2024 - September 30, 2027.
